Great point! I am sure there are many Americans who carry and/or own several guns from years ago, with none of them registered! One thing Americans will NOT allow to happen is to have our 2nd amendment taken away.
This morning I read a report about a home owner who's home was broken into by criminals that were looking to steal his guns. The home owner was one identified by the Journal News as having guns. The criminals were caught.
I believe it would be fair to publish the names and addresses of all the DEM gun grabbers and the CEO, Editor and board of directors of Journal News to display their gun ownership or lack there of!
Too true. Even my cheap Mosin-Nagant throws the lead pretty well for a beat-up 71-year-old.
Before you visit the gunsmith, you should call and discuss the calibers of the various guns you need checked out. Just to make sure he has the correct headspace gauges on hand for the basic safety check.
Be warned, if you leave a firearm with a gunsmith/FFL for more than 24 hours, they have to input the gun's information in their bound book. So eventually, despite not having seen the light of day since before the '68 Gun Control Act, those firearms will enter the BATFE database if that FFL ever shuts down, or gets raided for (fill in the "official reason" for the federal fishing expedition here), or... well, you get the idea.
Make sure the 'smith checks things out while you wait. If parts replacements are required, take the guns home until the parts shipment arrives.
Hey, it's not paranoia if they really *are* out to get you. ;-)
Fortunately for me, I wasn't looking for .223 on Saturday.
Does this mean we’ll have to use our older weapons if the Chinese, Indians AND the Russians invade?
I just got a gun for the first time in my 63 years. I’ve been thinking abotu it for a few years as I watched civil order break down. Last month I decided to get one while I can. Saturday at the Gander Mountain, the gun department looked like a beehive, and, probably due to the popularity of the Taurus Judge, stocks of 410 shells were depleted in Gander Mountain, Wal-Mart, and a local hunting store.
BTW, decent Mosin Nagant stripper clips are FINALLY coming over. Get 'em while you can!
Check out www.budsgunshop.com They are awesome!! (at least to me..)
Hmmmmm.... didn’t know that.
Thanks for the info.
My gut concurs with yours. I think the 300m number is just the firearms they know about.
There's a mountain of hardware that's totally off the radar. For example, I wonder how many AK parts kits have been imported over the years and subsequently turned into functioning rifles?
Just after Christmas, I was waiting while my car was being serviced at a Firestone shop. My car was the only one in the service bay, so two other mechanics busied themselves by working on something over by the shop's hydraulic arbor press. Finally I saw one of the guys holding what I recognized as a sheet metal AK receiver. There were six of them lined up on the workbench.
Germany and Japan started WW2 with less than that.
Good to hear. Last time I tried a quick re-load with my Russian surpluss strippers, I removed flesh from several parts of my hand. Good quality mid-war Soviet manufacturing. Don't bother rounding those edges Vasilli, the troops won't last long enough for a re-load.
Budsguns Ping for later!
The ones I’m seeing are postwar Soviet with the Ishevsk arrow. They are thicker and mor ridgid than any I’ve seen before. The new Chinese ones are the worst...they are like razor blades.
4 of them were mine.
Not counting the other 3 that i didnt buy from private sourced
I have reservations about taking your family guns to someone for “servicing” because then the guns WILL be in someone’s records when ,not if, the government agenys come around with their portable scanners and copies to “examine” and ILLEGALLY copy the records.
What the government (or no one else) doesn’t know you have ,they can’t tax.Or specifically come to steal.
